Kandi Burruss gave birth to a son named Ace in early January.
And the kid is most definitely a cutie. There can be no debate over that statement…
But debate has emerged on the Internet over Kandi and her husband’s ongoing attempt to potty train their relatively new baby.
Yes, they are trying to potty train a four-month old.
This is difficult enough to do for many two-year olds, but Kandi and Todd Tucker have uploaded a handful of photos and videos to their social media accounts that show Ace on the toilet.
There’s a small seat that goes over on top of the bowl:
“Ace sleeps through the night without peeing in his diaper. So I put him on the potty every Morning and he pees in the toilet,” Todd wrote as a caption to the above image.
Burruss, who has been very open with her breastfeeding, shared her own footage of Ace attempting to do his personal business and then tried to fend off the criticism she figured was coming her way.
“I know a lot of people are gonna talk trash because we have #Ace on the potty already but I did the same thing with @rileyburruss,” she wrote of her daughter, who is now 13.
We’ll do our best to ignore the fact that Kandi used a hashtag for her four-month old son.
“I bought the baby toilet seat that fits on top of the toilet & for the past week we’ve been putting Ace on the toilet in the mornings. As soon as we sit him up there he pees.
“One time he pooped & peed. It helps to get them used to the concept early. I don’t expect him to be fully potty trained early but it does help.
“I’ve done it before so I’m speaking from experience. I’m not saying it will work for anyone else but this works for us.
“Today I didn’t get the diaper off quick enough & he started going as soon as I sat him on the toilet! He got me!”
We’re not really sure why anyone would take issue with this.
But it’s the Internet and it’s parenting and everyone thinks he or she is an expert in everything… so we take it back.
We totally get why people would take issue with this.
